How many places do you think charge you their actual cost for shipping? Unless your buying from a private individual (& even then alot of guys add on a few $), most companies tack on some extra to cover packaging materials & also if they need to cover some costs to take the package to a depot/post office to ship.
Whats wrong with the packaging? Sure it may not be the best but it did get to you in perfect condition, didn't it?
Edit: Just noticed the date, what the hell Paul, lol
